The Demon Slayer spin-off series Kimetsu Gakuen will reportedly become a serialized manga published in Saikyo Jump, starting August 4, 2021. Higuma no Te manga artist Natsuki Hogami will be in charge of illustration. Additionally, Demon Slayer creator Koyoharu Gotoge will celebrate the serialization with a new illustration included in the 31st edition of Weekly Shonen Jump. [Thanks, ryokutya2089!]

Officially titled Chuko Ikkan Kimestu Gakuen, the spin-off series initially started off as short comedic segments included at the end of Demon Slayer chapters. Illustrated by Gotoge, the modern “school life” parody features popular Demon Slayer characters as high school students and various Hashira as the academy’s teachers. Kimetsu Gakuen‘s universe was also elaborated further in the Demon Slayer novelizations.

The spin-off short stories eventually received an anime adaptation back in February 2021, when Ufotable aired a four-part Valentine’s Day special on streaming services in Japan. The Kimetsu Gakuen versions of the characters will also appear in the upcoming Demon Slayer: Hinokami Kepputan fighting game developed by Cyberconnect2.

Saikyo Jump is a bi-weekly magazine published by Weekly Shonen Jump‘s Shueisha and includes various other spin-off properties such as the Naruto title Rock Lee & His Ninja Pals as well as another school life parody series, One Piece Gakuen.

Demon Slayer Chuko Ikkan Kimetsu Gakuen will officially debut as a serialized manga on Saikyo Jump starting August 4, 2021.
